Qualified Candidates to Receive Free Palo Alto Networks PA-200 Firewall and Migration Tools.

Santa Clara, CA , Aug 1, 2013 - Palo Alto Networks (NYSE: PANW), the network security company™, today announced SafeSwitch for Sourcefire, a program that enables Sourcefire users to easily switch to the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation security platform. Switching to the Palo Alto Networks platform can benefit Sourcefire customers by delivering a comprehensive network security platform built on a next-generation security engine that protects against all threats independent of application, port, and protocol.

Unlike typical stand-alone IPS systems and legacy firewalls built on stateful inspection technology, the Palo Alto Networks security platform – a combination of next-generation firewall and threat prevention technologies – protects networks both from known threats as well as targeted or custom malware, hacking tools, and command-and-control techniques that enable Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs).

SafeSwitch for Sourcefire

The SafeSwitch program provides step-by-step assistance ranging from the consideration stage to installation of the Palo Alto Networks security platform. Some of the key program elements include:

  • Free switching gear – qualified Sourcefire customers considering switching to the Palo Alto Networks platform receive a complimentary Palo Alto Networks PA-200 Firewall to start their technology and migration assessment.
  • Switching credit – Sourcefire customers with active maintenance will receive credits on their Sourcefire investment*.
  • Switching expertise – Sourcefire customers switching to Palo Alto Networks will benefit from the next-generation security expertise, programs, and tools to ensure a successful migration.
